Why does none of you "tech reviewers" talk about all the issues Pixel 3 has???? I've got three replacements already... Quality control is SHIT... Non existent in Google factory... The speakers have a permanent buzzing when talking by the phone in all the devices i've received! The microphone is shit... People listen to me like have intermittent signal... got two phone with the glass cover lifted... This is the worst experience buying a smartphone EVER!! I've read lots of users complaining about theses stuff, but none reviewer so far... Google will never improve as long as you, reviewers, don't talk about the matter that matters! And this is the kind of things that really matter. A great camara is worthless on phone you cannot make a phone call...

Note: the back does NOT "scratch" easily. It's glass. It scratches even a mineral harder than itself rubs against it. What you're likely seeing is a mineral "softer" than glass, say your keys, or the aluminum of another phone, rubs against, and rubs off on it. You can simply clean it off with a little detergent and warm water. This effect is more obvious on the Pixel because of the odd "etching" type of effect on it. Essentially it acts as a grater for softer minerals. As such softer minerals are more easily scoffed and scraped on to it. Further, it's harder to take out of all those little nooks and crannies in the pixel back glass.

Hey Dave Lee, any comments on the speaker quality of the 3XL? Seems to be a lot of issues cropping up and I wondered if you noticed anything during your review.

Scratches on the back easily prevented by a quality slim case from Spigen or Tech 21. The case even gives me better grip on the body of the phone.

Hey David, great review. Your pentameter when speaking and the inflection of your voice is great. No crutch words or anything to be had, love reviews like this. I have the Pixel 3 as well for the same reasons you do. Smaller and easier to handle yet still retaining flagship specs. I really enjoy it coming from a GS8, however I do miss the 4k samsung screen. Random question: what are the lights staged behind you? They look perfect for a drum room I am building in my home. Cheers!

Hey Dave...I really liked your vid and got a question for you. I have a Pixel 2 XL and bought it mainly as a back up phone to my 6T and as a main camera phone. I love taking pics with my pixel but am just not sure if its worth it to upgrade to the Pixel 3 for the camera upgrade (main shooter, not selfie). Can you tell if if there is a huge difference in photo quality and user experience between Pixel 2 and Pixel 3? I hear from some people that differences are barely noticeable. I am just not sure.

Yeah, basically all the "bad" stuff you said in the video were deal-breaker for me back then. Which is why I decided to go other way sacrificing the pure Android experience. I went for Huawei P20 Pro. Especially the battery life is kick-ass in comparison. And the camera (overall) to me, seems still better than the one on Pixel 3. Can't wait for the P30 actually. =))

So here is an update... Google has openly admitted they were working with DXOmark to have their phones perform best in their test. In the industry of photography they are leading in executing tests and come up with an neutral conclusion as much as possible. Here is MKBHD explaining DXOmark; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgeJ0XYuI2E And now the list is updated with at last the review of the Pixel 3, and since almost every single tech-tuber is hyping the Pixel 3 because Google has given them one or lending them one. The Pixel end up at place 8 with the Huawei P20 pro at no.1 iPhone XS Max at no.2 and the iPhone XR at no.7 And then there is the Xiaomi Mi mix 3 ranked at no.5 an phone for just about $300. So anyone claiming it is the best camera in the industry period... I'm sorry but you're hugely wrong. If it is the best phone for you, then absolutely all power to you... and disregard this.

A month later, apps are hiding the notch extremely well with a black bar while keeping the notification icons up top, giving you more screen real estate. I played with them for hours in store expecting to like the black Pixel 3, and the white Pixel 3 XL is better. Pixel 3 looks skinny with the taller screen and I recommend 105% text scaling to read websites as easily as the XL. I expected to hate the notch based on pictures, but it's way different in person. Both screens are significantly better than last year with consistent quality control. Check them out in person.

"4GB of RAM is very little for a phone in 2018." I think that enforcing this idea is a problem, as the only thing that cause this to ever be touted about is Chinese phone manufacturers stuffing their phones with excessive RAM so that they don't have to spend money on RAM optimization and make their phones look better than they are. with good RAM management, even 3GB of RAM is more than enough in 2018.

Google really need to OWN it own hardware unit, no more Samsung, LG or others to rely on them to build the harware side of the phone........like for real!!! That's why Apple is ahead of Google in term of profit and everything that come with it. Come on Google be SERIOUS if you want to be 100% in this business for smartphones sake!

Realistically though, why on Earth do phones need that much RAM even in 2018? Applications really don't utilize that much memory, and frankly it takes mere split seconds to open an app. I occasionally close applications on my iPhone X, but really I've never once sat there and worried about a split second to reopen an app.

Curious. Why do you care if your phone ends the day with more than 30% battery life? I end my day usually with 15% ish with my Pixel 2 XL and I have had it now for quite a long time. You are still goinjg to charge it whether it has 20 or 50% left over. Just wondering your review logic of hoping it was better. Seems to me a cellphone of that size lasting all day long is phenominal.

I don't necessarily entirely agree about the 8gb thing. Surely it would be overkill for the vast majority of users? If you need any more than 4gb of RAM you probably ought to be doing what you're doing on a proper PC.

Google answered the whole charging thing quite honestly I thought. The Qi (Pronounced Chi), standard does not cover 10 watt charging specs. The bulk of the phones out today with wireless charging stick to the Qi standard strictly.

My 2 cent here. I changed to the pixel after having an iPhone X for a month and I love it. I love the wireless charging. The screen. The camera. The Google assistance. The wireless charging pod has way more features for the phone than just as a charger. But what annoys me is that people go on about the 4gb of ram when Samsung s9 is 4gb of ram and the Samsung S9+ is 6 GB of ram. The iPhone XS Max is only 4 GB of ram! This is a stock android phone, you get a plain canvise unlike Samsung with all their pre loaded apps. The notch... I agree when i first saw the screen I was like. That's a bit ugly. But now I don't notice it. I love how smooth the phone is. I think the speakers are fine. Yes some phones have better speakers. Some don't. But me personally. I'm super happy with the switch. I did tonnes of research over the last 14 days and even my girlfriend wants to change from iPhone to one of these phones. I think it's a superb phone. This is my opinion. I will say, I am basic when it comes to my phone. I have it as a phone, email, some social media, banking, YouTube and Spotify. I'm not a big gamer on my phone. But I also work in a phone shop and most of my customers just use their Samsung or iPhone for the same things. So when it comes down to it. It ends up being. Pay £1100 for a iPhone XS max or £870 for a Google Pixel XL.

I agree with you. I haven't noticed an issue on mine with ram, I did get lucky and was not affected by the bugs people reported prior to the December update. It runs noticeably smoother than my older S8+ with an equal amount of memory. Google has adopted the Apple methodology and has optimised the software for the hardware - so even with less memory, performance is still stunningly fluid.

I would prefer the pixel 3 instead of the xl, as it’s more convenient in size and it still has a superior camera, I could use it to take family photos instead of me carrying around my old $1000 canon which looks awkward. It certainly looks better on the front with the glass and the coolest part is the wireless charging and not to forget it’s sexy frosted glass, tho I’m still using vinyl wrap over it.
